I just this minute placed my order for it on Wal-Mart.com. $15.48 plus $2.47 S&H. They are saying it will be delivered between 1/9 and 1/13, which is a week to 10 days. To save about $11, I can live with that.

I ordered mine on 12/29 (from Walmart.com) and I just tracked it - it appears that it should show up either today or tomorrow.

I wonder if there is any way to get the Excel files from his site after buying the book elsewhere... :-?

Yes, you can. It will ask you for a word that appears on a specific page of the book as a password...or at least it has in the past.

Just got mine and can't put it down. I ordered it on Amazon on December 1.

I've never been a fan of his projections. However, his presentation on sabermetrics for each player is second to none, and I like to bounce it against my instincts in coming up with my own projections.

Projections are rather subjective and dollar values really depend on your league.

It's a great book for stats and sabermetrics though.

Should have my copy early next week.

I ordered it from Amazon on 12/29, got it the next day.

Very happy with it. Everything is comprehensive and clearly thought out.

Dont be swayed by the naysayers who say that the book got stuff wrong last year. There is no way to get everything right, and they arent trying to tell you what is going to happen. The key is to draw your own conclusions from the info provided.

Also, some of the blurbs next the player names are hilarious this year.
